Champions League (F): Lyon crushes Benfica and reaches the semi-finals

Lyon had done the most by winning in Portugal a week ago (1-2). And this Wednesday during the quarter-final return at home, the Gones mastered Benfica (4-1) thanks to a double from international Delphine Cascarino, a goal from Diani and an own goal from Amado or a double from Diani according to UEFA. Thanks to this success, the Lyonnaises reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

With a painful success acquired in the first leg (2-1), the Gones were clear favorites at the start of this quarter-final return. Especially since opposite, the Lisbon side were playing a second round of the Women's Champions League for the first time, when OL were eight-time winners. So this evening, all that was left to do was finish the job, before heading to the final four.

From the start, the locals put pressure on their opponents and were rewarded only 40 minutes later with the opening score of Delphine Cascarino (43rd). After starting the pressure and causing the goalkeeper's error, she received a back pass from Le Sommer and lobbed the defense to score her first goal of the evening. Except that in the process, the Lisbonites reacted with a lightning counter concluded by Alidou d'Anjou before the break (45th).

Returning from the locker room, Delphine Cascarino did it again to give her team the advantage again, with a heavy strike on the edge of the area (51st). The introductions of Majri and Becho did good, and we had to wait until the stoppage time before seeing new achievements.

Diani hit the nail on the head with a header from Horan (90th 1st), and caused a cap goal which was awarded to him, although it looked like a CSC (90th 6th). Without trembling, the Lyonnaises fulfilled the contract. Next meeting in the semi-final, against the winner of the Hacken-PSG double confrontation.
